Waterfowl

Waterfowl hunting may be done on land in corn and wheat fields or over water on the Missouri River (mostly boat access with a few wade-in areas), on natural wetlands or on man-made impoundments. License options for nonmembers include daily ($40) or season ($120); federal stamps are also required.

Hunting over flooded corn is available at Medicine Creek for no extra fee and in heated pit blinds at Little Bend for an additional fee ($100 per day per person unguided or $50 per day per person guided by Tribal Member (must also pay guiding fee to Tribal Member) - decoys and heaters are provided).

The former Mni Sho Sho Goose Camp is no longer operated as a goose camp but is now a Walk-in Area for all hunting and no special fees will be required. As a Walk-in Area, there will be goose hunting opportunities as well as other types of hunting. Please see the main hunting map in the brochure for designated roads that may be used; all other parts of this unit are walk-in only.
